calculated risk

I think,

that as long as you have

the capacity to love,


then you are vulnerable

to having your heart broken.


The greater your love,

the greater the risk of injury.


I think,

it’s so totally worth it.

    • I have definitely had my heart broken by people I love. I worry nearly every day about when my heart will be broken by the loss of my little dog. It will come; it’s inevitable. And people will hurt me again. But I would not give up my capacity to love. I only wish I loved more than I do now.

  2. Broken hearts are part of life if you are really living and not just existing. That being said, the more broken the more protective of our hearts we tend to be.

    I know how you feel about your dog. The older Dolly and Henry got the harder it was knowing time with them was growing short. I will always miss those two. And now I have Teddy…

    • You are right.

      I was so sad about Dolly; she’s the only one I knew. But I think of her and you lots of times when I look at Louis. But Teddy is proof that love lives! And it has been exciting to see him grow.

    Losing a loved one whether it’s a broken relationship or death is never easy. Love is love and has no boundaries. It doesn’t discriminate. But it’s that type of love which helps to make us better individuals. Love opens our hearts and allows us to grow closer to each other. It teaches us to trust, to rely on each other and to experience happiness. When we lose that special someone, life becomes hard again. But if you can learn to focus on all the good which was brought into your life due to that particular relationship, it removes the stumbling blocks for future ones. You will become strengthened and you will grow in new ways. Don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow has it’s own worries..Enjoy today and be blessed…

    I hope life is kind to you and may you experience happiness as never before…..Many, many blessings to you…..Robin

    • Hi Robin! Thanks for your wonderful comment…and blessings, too!

      I agree, these experiences help us to grow emotionally. As long as we keep going and don’t let ourselves fold in, then we will come out stronger in the end.
